Waters Of Life (tanka)

Take one lasting look

Across the waters of our life

Moments refreshing

Softly flowing past the lips

Of meadows ever after

The haunting beauty pictured above lets me slip into the quiet reflection you seem destined to let flow from within.

I truly am awed by the talent you have for creating such powerful imagery.

Hugs and love...Angels are on the way ...Shared...ps
